Racial discrimination occurs when one party treats an individual or group differently on the basis of race, color, or national origin without a legitimate, non-discriminatory reason so as to interfere with or limit the ability of that individual or group from participating in or benefitting from the services, activities, or privileges afforded to members of the university community.
